I've eaten here twice now. The attraction (not mine) was the Pork knuckle on the menu. Being in the company of big eaters, on both occasions I've laid witness as the Meat platter (with accompanying Pork knuckle) was almost demolished. I say 'almost' as the...More

I had a mixed German platter I forget what it was called but it had a bit of everything. It was really tasty and filling as well. The Lowenbrau was also great but I expected that of course. Expect to pay for quality and I'm...More

Always fun at this place, recommend going with a few mates as it's loud and very much a party atmosphere all the time. If you want a more intimate spot, try up outside on the street as inside is very much like any other big...More

This place was the final destination for our crew on my Buck's night. The food was overpriced ($30-$40 for a schnitzel?!), but it was amazing. The best damned Chicken Schnitzel I've ever had. Every mouthful was heaven. I also tried some pork belly and pork...More

Terrible service, very slow, loud and horrible music. Appalling food. Tasteless, fatty, cold. And slow, did I mention it was slow. All very faux German and trying too hard. The schnapps was good but that was it. Unbelievable to think MacDonald's would be healthier, tastier...More

Okay, it is never a quiet venue at the best of times and even less so during Oktoberfest so, with the benefit of hindsight, organizing a lunchtime get together with friends we have not seen for a while was not my finest moment venue wise!!...More

The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi

Housed in a stone, heritage-listed building, in the heart of The Rocks, Munich Brauhaus is the place to be if you're looking for a range of thirst quenching (unpronounceable) Bavarian craft beers. This historic venue has had a makeover, morphing into a refreshed, more modern version of its former self - meaning the haus party just got bigger and better! While there is a strong emphasis on beer, the authentic Bavarian style menu also sets tongues wagging. The Munich-style restaurant and bar will transport you straight to Germany with their traditional dishes and female waiters dressed in traditional Dirndl dresses (settle down boys, we know you're excited!). Famed for its stellar selection of hand-crafted burgers and haus-made hot dogs, this venue has all the key ingredients to draw a crowd - and has no trouble doing so - night, after night, after night. Prost!
